Highway Out, Highway In

It was time for me to venture back into the north; back to San Francisco, the place where I started my adventure in the United States. After leaving Los Angeles and enjoying the scenery along the coastal road, I eventually entered an inland road that also leads back up north, heading for my next stop in San Luis Obispo. I stopped multiple times to take a look at the sceneries in certain viewing points.

Before reaching San Luis Obispo, I pulled over into the Danish city of Solvang. The atmosphere was very calm and laid-back with bakeries almost anywhere in the midst of a chilly late afternoon.

From there I headed for San Luis Obispo and arrived there at night. The next day I explored the area a bit and eventually headed up North once again with several spots to stop in such as Gilroy.

A pleasant drive and change of scenery it was as we went back. By the late afternoon I arrived in to Stanford.

Since I did not post about the road going down South, here are some photographs aside from my overnight stay in Monterey.
